As we’ve mentioned previously, short/medium beard styles typically suit oval face shapes better.  What’s convenient about shorter beard styles, is that you can trim much easier by using an electric razor with a guard, instead of having to use scissors and a comb. If you also use a beard shaping tool, you’ll get cleanly defined beard lines in no-time!

Don’t take too much attention away from your even facial proportions and sport the soul patch. A super easy beard style to maintain that gives a nice accent to your style.

Full beard

For a full beard, expect to grow it for at least 2-3 months, depending on how fast your beard grows. Once in a while, as you’re trimming your beard, use the shaping comb to make your beard lines as clean as you can. This will make your beard stand out from the lot!

The Garibaldi beard is essentially a full beard, but with a few more weeks of growth. The moustache is kept above the upper lip and connects to the sides.
